Marginally better than the first film, but that's not saying very much.

A série Resident Evil também se transformou em um morto-vivo. E já está devorando os cérebros de seus espectadores.

The longer the story goes on, the more it feels like a live action video game and not a real movie.

A zombie movie as dead-eyed and soulless as its walking dead villains.

I haven't seen action scenes shot and edited this badly since the 2002 remake of Rollerball.

[An] elaborate gory gaming gimmick. The feisty energy and revolving recklessness cannot overcome the absurdity and superficial aspect of this unfocused hedonistic horror show
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Nemesis looks like what would happen if The Toxic Avenger ate The Terminator. He fires a rocket launcher. Stuff 'splodes, people die. Get back to your Cheetos.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

It's not good, but it's enjoyable on a purely visceral level. It is an improvement over the first film in every possible factor.

This is strictly second-tier terror.

It's basically the same old 90-minute zombie shoot as before, just with louder guns and bigger explosions. And more shooting sparks. There's a s---load of shooting sparks.

The best thing is that director Witt actually manages, amid the chaos, to centre on the characters and create people we can cheer for.

Overall, if you can accept Alice as an enhanced bioweapon, and why not -- she is battling zombies after all, you should be able to sit back and enjoy the ride.

First-time director Alexander Witt is content to supply quick cuts of incomprehensible motion instead of lingering shots of the undead horde; any suspense he attempts to create is quickly supplanted by histrionics.

RE2's best reiteration, Alice's identity crisis, is refitted here to extend the game.

What the hell happened? I hadn't been more certain of a trainwreck since I heard Tony Danza was coming out with a new talk show...

Is it utopian to expect better of the next first-person shooter that comes to the screen?

Resident Evil: Apocalypse has some shocks, but its flesh-chomping zombies and evil corporate honchos amount to the same old mayhem, just bigger and louder.

The undead are back to stumbling in the dark, sometimes even in blurry slo-mo, making the many packs of them about as terrifying as the mobs waiting for Matt and Katie outside the Today studio.
